. as for undecided voters, the cnn poll was of all viewers, but cbs did a poll specifically of undecided voters who were watching the debate, and joe biden won overwhelmingly, 53% to 35% something in that range. those are the voters that people are looking for right now. they clearly said joe biden was the winner. >> one of our polls cnn/orc poll, they said who was more likable. and it was paul ryan who won by a decent margin. almost 10% margin there. also, who performed better at the debate? that looked like a tie from our perspective. >> that was a poll of all the viewers. it was as you indicated earlier slighted weighted towards republicans. >> this was debate watchers. >> right. but the cbs poll was debate watchers who were undecided going in. and they gave the clear victory. >> let's talk a little bit about paul ryan on tax cuts. i want to play a little bit from the debate. >> sure. >>> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch o

correspondent is going to battle with the president. cbs news, laura logan did her own investigation of al qaeda in afghanistan and she insists there is a lie out of washington that the military might has tamed the taliban. she warns the taliban and al qaeda are coming back and logan also claims that the u.s. should exact revenge on the libya terror attack. and a senior state official says in the state department, his department never said that the attack was sparked by protests from the video. john bolton is here. good evening, sir. state department says, don't blame us, we never said video, saying it on the eve of a committee hearing tomorrow. >> i think the wheels have been coming off the administration's version of this incident for a long time. i think the reality has always been that these were terrorist attacks in the case of libya, and radical demonstrations in cairo and other countries in the middle-east. and the whole idea that this somehow was caused by the video has never withstood scrutiny. that's why the administration, i think is so concerned about the hearings and then when you h

. there is a growing debate over a recent speech from the chief foreign affairs course cents from cbs news. laura logan has reported from some of the most dangerous places in the world. she stunned a chicago crowd with her stark assessment of america's place in the world and the real story as she sees it with the war in afghanistan and the consulate attack in libya. saying in part, quote, there is a narrative coming out of washington. they are just a poor moderate gentler kinder taliban. it's such nonsense. on libya she says, quote, exact revenge and let the world know the united states will not be attacked on its own soil. its ambassadors will not be murdered and the united states will not stand by and do nothing about it. she actually came right out and used the term "lie" when speak being the administration talking about certain situations overseas. pell we'll speak with leslie marshall and ben ferguson. she came out and let loose. she said, i chose this topic to talk about the taliban and al qaeda in afghanistan among others because she says i can't stand that there is a major lie being prop gate.
democrats of the vice president's performance. the cbs news poll says 51% biden won the debate and 31% ryan won the debate. your thoughts. >> the cnn poll had it the other way. i want to go back to this benghazi issue which i think is more than analyzing the style points of this debate. what this white house is doing in trying to throat intelligence communities under the bus is atrocious. both the state department, telephone possible conference and the testimony in congress makes it clear that the intelligence community was right on this right from the start. it's the kind of intelligence discussion that takes place when a president is briefed and goes through that briefing processn in bern the cia. this president chose to skip almost 60% of that give and take in the cia briefings. that part of his problem. but the second thing that was atrocious yesterday was joe biden trying to claim that there was a problem of funding. when they had not only the terrible part of this is that they had denied investing in additional security for the ambassador in libya but spent $150,000 for a new select c
one camera even when they are not speaking. and it goes on to say the major networks, abc, cbs, cnn and fox news all say they plan to use the screen shots regularly throughout the vice presidential debate. they said it is even considering them during the presidential debate last week. in denver some of the candidates in the past have tried it with varying degrees of success to the limit from using what our reaction shots from candidates. to bill clinton and president george bush in '92 when it starts to write into the debate contract the television networks could not broadcast such images. the story goes on to say networks use whatever schultz the choose despite the pressure from the campaign and the year typically nine cameras hosted by the commission on the presidential debate a nonpartisan organization that oversees the production while the commission has final say over whether the cameras -- where they are placed they do not control the mechanics of filming the camera angles or decisions about when to cut away. it is left solely to the discretion of the network pool is providing
andrew wood told cbs news that his request for beefed-up security was rejected by washington. the man in charge of all state department personnel is under patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. fox news learned that the day after the attack kennedy privately briefed the staffers and told them it appears to be a sophisticated attack. but four days after that briefing, the u.s. ambassador susan rice offered a different narrative. she said rather that we don't see at this point that it was a coordinated premeditated attack. it was three days before any senior u.s. official stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> the americans deserve the truth on what happened. you will find that the bits and pieces are coming out. we are both troubled by what we saw unfold. in the end the truth ought to be done and people ought to be held accountable if bad decisions were mad. >> the u.s. has obtained footage of when the attacks were actually underway. that should shed light on what happened in benghazi. >> steve: we'll be watching. thank you very much. >> brian: it is

[cheers and applause] and if you cite the experience you had in congress, surely you must have some plan in mind about what you would do if it fell to you to becom
at the polling. cnn poll had ryan winning, cbs poll had biden winning. biden was effective when he got back to framing this as a choice of who is on your side. ryan, in the answer on libya was effective when he could get back to whether the past four years justify another four years. those are each strong arguments for those remaining undecided voters, which is why i think the debate, above all, shows we may be headed for the third photo finish presidential election out of the last four. >> jessica, if you listen to the reaction, it appears from joe biden's performance, i think people are saying, you know, joe biden, after that phone call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made th
